This scarce out-of-print book contains 50 hand-picked stories by Hemingway, Faulkner, Wolfe, Steinbeck, Caldwell, Dorothy Parker, Saroyan & more as well as bio notes. The book is in very good condition. The dust jacket has several chips and wear around the spine (did it's job very well to protect the book). The back of the jacket displays several other books of the time at $2.00 each. I've covered the book in a protective mylar sleeve. There is a bookplate & owner's name inscribed on 1st end paper (see photo). "50 Best American Short Stories", edited by Edward J. O'Brien, 1st edition, The Literary Guild, N.Y., Copyright 1939, 868 pages. This would make a great & unusual gift for the book-lover on your list.
